Case Study

Southampton leads the way in macro digital pathology imaging

University Hospital Southampton (UHS), a global digital centre of excellence and a leader in NHS IT, purchased five PathLite systems to be integrated with their Sectra PACS and installed on their grossing workstations. 

“We have had two PathLite systems in operation for some time now. Image acquisition and retrieval is straightforward and reliable; the ability to annotate pictures is helpful where there are complex specimens.Technical support is fast and faultless.”
